“When I start a font, I try to create something new and this often leads to prohibited places, shapes that we learn to avoid. Jaune started like that. My pretty simple idea was, instead of avoiding accidental encounters between paths in the bolder weights, to close everything and to treat these encounters as sticky but slick inktraps. I started with the black style and then had to apply the same principle to the lighter styles, which proved way more challenging. In Jaune, I tried to bring features from some of my other fonts such as Digestive into a more constructed, geometric sans serif.”
